Mr. Bean's Holiday (2007)

2 1/2 Stars (out of 4)

Bean Trip

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

Rowan Atkinson and Richard Curtis' amusing 1990 TV series "Mr. Bean" reversed Atkinson's snide, loquacious "Blackadder" character and turned him into a nearly speechless buffoon, a distant cousin to Chaplin's Tramp or Tati's Mr. Hulot. The 1997 Bean stretched his brief vignettes into a thin, exasperating, three-act feature film. Its new sequel is more clearly divided into individual sections, independent of plot, and keeps intact the character's murmuring non-dialogue. It's an improvement, and even intermittently funny. In rainy London, Mr. Bean wins a trip to the South of France, and runs into all kinds of trouble while getting there. He eventually tries to help reunite a lost Russian boy with his father. Willem Dafoe co-stars as a pretentious American filmmaker at Cannes.

DVD Details: Universal's Region 1 DVD comes with 24 minutes of deleted scenes, and three behind-the-scenes featurettes, "French Beans," (11 minutes), "Bean in Cannes" (6 minutes) and "The Human Bean" (6 minutes). Strangely, for a G-rated kids' film, it's not a particularly kid-friendly DVD.{subid}&url=hitlist.asp?searchfield=marvel
